I was really surprised to see how small London’s best beer store really is. The place is fun, the owner is really knowledgeable and wants to help you. However the beer selection is not that impressive with about 100 English micros and maybe a bit more imported (mainly Belgium). No rare find, a Cantillon Gueuze is about as wild as it gets. I’m used to limited beer selection since in Canada it is not an open market. However just about every USA city with 500,000 people have better beer selection than that and this is the best beer store in a 12.5 million people agglomerate (and only opened fridays and saturdays!!!) For tourists it’s a fun shopping experience because it is in the cool Borough Market. But the beer selection itself is mainly interesting to London locals. Most European/American tourists will find a better imported selection where they live. Some of their English micros are interesting to tourists but for that I’d recommend Real Ale Limited over Utobeer.

Beautiful stand in the heart of the Borough Market. Good assortment even if mostly beers come from Belgium. Available also beers coming from unusual and rare countries (I have acquired also from Kenya and from Mozambique). Cordial and helpful staff with the foreigner. In the vicinities of the "Market Porter" and "The Southwark Tavern". To visit absolutely.

I wanted to buy a few things here, but my baggage was already full from my time in western Europe... I had to pass on the Lou Pepe Geuze for £8.50 ($16 US), as well as the Meantime IPA and Porter... some things I really wanted. Ended up only buying a ginger soda to drink while waiting for the Market Porter to open (I was dehydrated). Otherwise, an excellent shop, with a decent lambic and Belgian selection, as well as some bottles from countries that I wanted.

Pretty good selection of beers, and the only place where I could find a J.W. Lees.
The owner was so friendly that once accepted a mail order and left the bottles to pick up at the nearby Market Porter.

Great range, friendly staff. If they haven’t got something, they’ll try to get it for you. Nice markets around too, pick up some wild boar sausages!

Being a market stall, there is no doorman who might turn away tourists (assuming tourism is a bad thing?). For what its worth I live locally & have found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. They are very enthusiastic & not too precious, despite having a deep cellar.The best beers are not always on display- not surprising considering the place is open plan. Fantastic!

Very helpful owner and employees who took the time to try to help me find a reasonable facsimile of a long-discontinued Whatney’s ale. Nice selection, and when I am back from US again will return with a long list.

Good selection, especially needed since the closure of Pitfied (which was actually better).. You will find some interesting stuff here, but don’t expect to get a load of gems. Range seems to have picked up in the last year. Good tip: while here, check for the cider stall nearby. They have three draught ciders from New Forest and some bottles. Nice!

Very good selection of Belgian, German and English (and a few American) quality beers (at least very good for a Norwegian who is not used to a decent selection!). Westvleteren was not available when I was there. Wines and preserves are available too. Borough Market is surrounded by many fine pubs (not all of them family friendly) and lies within easy walking distance of many tourist attractions. The market also has many stalls with fresh food, and some with the usual bric-a-brac.
